Hi Robert

The latest iteration of your postcode mapping viusalisation tool is a great
QA tool for filling in gaps. However - 2 questions

What do the columns  S0 and S5  signify?
What made you stopusig the geopunk website?

Are we going to monitor progress with a taginfo script, like we did before?
